Margaret Mylett was a blessing to our parish. For years she was the one who provided hospitality after funerals and comfort to the families. She shared what she had and most especially her gift of service.

The Sign of the cross before Mass:
When we begin Eucharist "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit," we enter explicitly into the real world: the world of relationship—of interaction—with God.
The Sign of the Cross is the oldest Christian profession of faith. In the late second century, Tertullian wrote: "In all our travels and movements, when coming in and going out, when putting on our shoes, at the bath, at the table, in lighting our candles, in lying down, in sitting down, whatever we are doing, we mark our foreheads with the sign of the cross"
What are we saying when we do this?
First we lift up our hand—and heart—to heaven, as many do when they pray to God. But the difference is, we put our hand on our head, on our forehead, to say we know him. He is not "the man upstairs" for us; he is our Father. He gives us his own divine life. Then we bring our hand down and place it on our heart to say God came down from heaven as Jesus the Son to be one of us, to take flesh and live in us as his body on earth. He lives and acts with us, in us, and through us to continue his mission of giving life to the world. Then we sweep our hand in an arc from one shoulder to the other to say that the Holy Spirit is within us, sending us out and empowering us to unite the whole world in one divine family of love.
All of this expresses the meaning, and is the fruit, of the cross, on which, by baptism, we died in Christ and rose again with him as a "new creation." If we understand the Sign of the Cross, we understand the mystery of Christianity.
At Mass we begin our week with the Sign of the Cross. It ex-presses the identity we have through relationship with the Three Persons of God. We can use it all week to remind us of who we are. We can "extend the Mass" by making the sign of the cross when we wake up and go to bed, when we sit down to table or get into the car, whenever we turn on a computer or pick up a cell phone.
The Mass reminds us to do everything we do "in the name" of the relationship we have with Father, Son, and Spirit. Why not carry that reminder into the world outside? By making the sign of the cross, we can express all week long our awareness of the relationship that people have with each other and with God that we receive at Mass. ... See MoreSee Less
